Title: Search for CP Violation in D± Meson Decays to Φπ±

Abstract

We search for CP violation in Cabibbo-suppressed charged D meson decays by measuring the difference between the CP-violating asymmetries for the Cabibbo-suppressed decays D±→K⁺K⁻π± and the Cabibbo-favored decays D±s→K⁺K⁻π± in the K⁺K⁻ mass region of the Φ resonance. Using 955 fb⁻¹ of data collected with the Belle detector, we obtain AD⁺→Φπ⁺CP=(+0.51±0.28±0.05)%. The measurement improves the sensitivity of previous searches by more than a factor of 5. We find no evidence for direct CP violation.
